The company credited Madison Fire District’s response with keeping the damage contained to the facility’s pail warehouse, maintenance department and small materials storage area. The facility’s warehouse for storing finished goods was “unaffected,” the spokesperson said. The company is now assessing water damage inside production facilities and offices.
Shipments are expected to resume “later this week” after employees return to the facility.
